ISO 18T Speedometer Gear

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a reasonably priced Blue 18 tooth speedometer gear assembly from an 87-93 4x4 pathfinder or pickup. Anybody have one kicking around in their parts bin?
I've found some overseas but the shipping is outrageous and I do not live near any junk yards.
I tried 17 &19 in my WD21 but they are too fast/slow, I need an 18.

I use amayama.com (Japan) and partsouq.com (UAE) to get scarce or oddball items.  International shipping has been very reasonable.  PS stuff gets to my door super quick.

 

Amayama appears to have both the assembly (32702-33G18) and pinion only (32703-31G18) available.  The former looks to be about $40 shipped.  The thing about Amayama is that you pay up front and they'll try to acquire the part through their network (they are a broker)...it may take days, weeks, or months, or never happen at all.  The pinion appears to fall under that latter grouping, it price wise is about the same.  The assembly appears to be available and can ship quicker.

I'll echo the concerns on Amayama. I ordered differential thrust washers in March of 2020 (I know, I know, bad time). I got a shipping confirmation in December 2021 and they are slated to show up March 2022. At the same time, it's an impossible part to find anywhere else on the internet, so I don't exactly know how to feel about that. Hopefully I can pass them on to someone else doing a lokka install.

I've had good results with Amayama overall.  They've been able to get some totally obscure stuff for me, and at great prices, but I've had to cancel an order or two due to just being tired of waiting.

I got tired of the clowns on Facebook telling me to check AutoZone so I reached out to Amayama this weekend. They previously had it at $36 for shipping alone. With that fixed, I placed an order.

 

Partsouq UAE is my favorite but they did not have it this time. That's where I got my 16t speedo for the 3.70 differential...

Nice. Partsouq is where I got an 18t speedo pinion for my D22.  They’ve been super reliable for other purchases. Hope Amayama works out!

Amayama and Megazip are good next-steps when PartSouq comes up dry. They have multiple warehouses as well as some info on production cycles (due dates on out of stock items that are still in production)

New Year showed up from Japan last week and I installed it today.

 

18t blue speedo gear 235/85r16 tires and 4.6 gears vs gps = 1.6% or .96 mile less for every 60miles, (based on a 12 mile drive)

 

For reference, the 17t black Speedo gear was 4% or 2.4 miles less for every 60 miles (based on a 100 mile drive)
